(a)   Maintenance practices and materials (code BA);
(b)   Aerodynamics and mechanical controls (code BB);
(c)   Electrical and instrument systems (code BC).
Note   The examinations coded BA, BB and BC are prescribed in the Specification under CAO 100.91 for category airframes and in the Specification under CAO 100.92 for category engines.
